Is there a way to upgrade a module by one version level via cpan, but not the latest version?

romandas has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I installed Strawberry Perl on a new XP workstation and tried to upgrade one of the modules that came with it, specifically DBM::Deep. The version installed is 1.0013, but I know that 1.0014 was released by rkinyon, so I'd like to upgrade to that. However, the latest version cpan finds is 1.0016.

Is there a way to have cpan upgrade by one version level? I'm not asking out of any affinity for 1.0014; I'm just curious if it can be done -- I couldn't find a way via cpan.

    You can get/make/test/install RKINYON/DBM-Deep-1.0014.tar.gz
      So then, the answer is no? :) There isn't a way to do it via the cpan commandline?

        "So then, the answer is no?

        No, the answer given works.

        "There isn't a way to do it via the cpan commandline?"

        Yes, as previously advised by ikegami:

        cpan> install RKINYON/DBM-Deep-1.0014.tar.gz
